this elegant bridge

*for brownin’*

my heart
if asked with conviction
would say to you,
‘let you and i walk along
this elegant bridge before us
let’s not think about the steel wool
of the clouds of doubt that have scraped us both
until we became raw.
let us laugh at each other
laugh at the darkness
laugh at all of those past regrets
as we walk side by side
let us make troubled waters
our liquor and drink it from each other’s hands
and cool the afterburn with caring words
let us walk
along this elegant bridge
to an ocean we call ours
where we will let ourselves
float in a love that doesn’t let us drown.’
